Ice Dance International has teamed with Fukadance and founder Junichi Fukuda to bring this unique clinic to Boston. Skaters will learn combinations and work with Junichi on dance and movement during the off-ice portion. Douglas Webster, IDI Artistic Director, with assistance by IDI company members, will then bring this movement to the ice for an exploration of contemporary ballet and skating!
